I'm migrating users from one domain to another, when laptop users are migrated their replication page shows their local mail file replicating with their old home server - as the prefered server is set to any available try old home server first.  Is there a way I can change this for all users?

In the Replicator Page, you can set which server is to be taken first, and even if only that server is to be used. In the Workspace, make sure that the replica on the new server is added to the stacked icon for the mail database. In the Replicator Page, right-click on the line with the mail database, then select Options. If you have R6, you'll see Preferred server at the bottom.  Either select <Any available, try last successful first>, or <Any available, try YourServer/XXX first>, or <YourServer/XXX> if you don't wan't the replicator to go looking for alternate replicas.

Re your question "for all users", I suppose you mean in one single operation? AFAIK, that's not possible. There are no functions in the available language to change entries on the replicator page. It might be possible using the C-API though...

From your perspective I can understand the C, but I'm absolutely not happy with it. In my opinion I gave the correct answer, so a B would have been the least you could do.
